Shekhawati

Shekhawati lies in a triangle between Jaipur, Bikaner and Delhi and the entire region is considered an open air museum for its beautiful frescoes. Since the 15th century when Rao Shekha opposed the rule of the Amber kings, the region remained a semi-autonomous collection of thikanas (feudal states). In the middle of the 19th century, the inhabitants of Shekhawati began to patronise the art of fresco painting. These paintings depict local legends, animals, portraits, hunting and wrestling scenes. The roads of Shekhawati, now like any other, were once caravan routes where the productions of India, Kashmir, and China, were interchanged for those of Europe, Africa, Persia and Arabia. Even though the trade rivalry with the British had pushed the Marwaris from Shekhawati to the ports, they never ceased to think of Shekhawati as their own land and this explains the enormous structures raised in nostalgia.The merchants built for the community: wells and reservoirs, dharamshalas (pilgrim resthouses), schools, gaushalas (shelter for cows), and temples. In the memory of their ancestors, they constructed cenotaphs, and for their families large havelis (mansions).

An artificial lake, it is said to have been constructed by Lachhi Bai Of Idar, the Rani of Maharawal Jagmal. Near the lake are the royal chhatris or cenotaphs of former rulers of the state. Kalpa Vriksha, holy trees said to fulfill the desires of visitors, surround this picturesque lake.

Badshahi Bagh Gurudwara

The Badshahi Bagh Gurudwara located in the city of Ambala, commemorates the visit of the tenth and last human Guru of Sikhism, Guru Gobind Singh. He modeled the religion into its current form by forming the Khalsa fraternity and completed the holy book of Guru Granth Sahib. This pristine Gurudwara made in white color was destroyed in 1857 by the British but was rebuilt in 1931 by Sant Gurmukh Singh. Every year the festival of Baisakhi is celebrated at the Gurudwara with great zeal. A place where you find immense peace even in today’s world. Delightfully serine. For all those who are religious, this is a location where one must go.
